Default Upper Deck Exquisite Football Redemption

I thought this might interest some of you guys that collect and break Upper Deck Exquisite products. My son has been waiting since February of this year for a really high end redemption card from Upper Deck. It turned out that the redeemed card did not get produced. The supervisor from Upper Decks Redemption department drove down from Carlsbad, CA to Las Vegas today and delivered a replacement card to my son. I took these pictures at Legacy Sports Cards in Vegas where we all met. On the left is Marcel the owner of Legacy, my son Tommy in the middle, and Ben Koebler supervisor from Upper Deck on the right. This is the card they gave my son "Merry Christmas". They went way beyond the call on this one so I thought it was worth sharing with you guys.

Awesome story! Ben hooked me up in the past, too. Definitely one of Upper Deck's best.

Has his name ever been list as A. Peterson on a jersey before? I am not sure. Any how that is a great card. Nice to see them go out of their way for your son!!

My son said the same thing right away about the A in Peterson. The card shop owner said it was from a jersey with A. Peterson.

Wow, and we wonder why nobody can hit a Peterson RPM out of 2007 Exquisite...it's because UD is holding them back!

I am happy for you and your son and it's even more amazing that a UD rep drove down and personally delivered the card. But you can hopefully understand the frustration of others who have busted a lot of 2007 Exquisite hoping to pull that card.

Thanks for sharing though...cool story.
